    People still use his old persona as Rustom Padilla. Without that, they would not look at him twice or even patronize his antics.

    Saying that Rustom has died, is another ploy for him to take in more fans.

    And he kept on saying that Rustom is dead. We should know, duh..

    His strategy does not work..

      Rustom is long dead.

      People still find it awkward that a once macho matinee idol, who used to do lethal fight scenes in the movies, is now a raging homosexual. But this is the Philippines and it is a free country. Imperative or not, we have to respect BB and whatever she wants to do in her life. We were soured by her shocking transformation and we are bound not to respect her. 

      At least we could give her credit for being honest.

    perhaps long suffering, he chose to live and be a ‘she’ instead of killing himself. instead of doing it literally than physically, let’s us commend her courage, as it is not easy being like ‘her’.

    let us respect her desire in life, she’s not hurting anybody anyway. It’s her body, her mind, her conscience, her own problem. she’s responsible and answerable for it when Judgement comes.

    Let’s just leave her alone.
